WARPED REALITY

Andy Cohen Takes On Leno As Watch What Happens Goes Five Nights A Week

Watch What Happens: Live, Bravo’s celebrity chatfest hosted by out network v.p. Andy Cohen, is moving to a five-night-a-week schedule in the new year.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cohen—who often features cast members from Bravo’s various reality shows—will scale back from his behind-the-scene executive duties with Bravo when WWWL moves to a Sunday-Thursday schedule, starting January 8 at 11pm.

“Expanding Watch What Happens: Live to five nights a week is the natural progression for this hit interactive show and a testament to Andy’s enormous appeal,” said Bravo president Frances Berwick on Monday.

As the series heads into its sixth season, Cohen admits he a little flabbergasted at his success. “In my wildest dreams when I started at Bravo seven years ago, I never imagined that I would end up fulfilling my lifelong dream,” he told THR. “I get to do the three things I’m most passionate about—producing, developing and hosting for a brand that I love.”

We’re not sure. A gray-haired 40-something gay man hosting a talk show? Sounds pretty far-fetched.

    Gee, he was in charge and gave himself show hosting duties. How shocking.

    I’m flabbergasted at Andy Cohen’s success as well. The only original program I watch on Bravo-TV is ‘Top Chef.’ The Emmy award winning program is both fun and entertaining. The Housewives franchise is cringe-worthy and not worth a minute of my time.

    Commercial media, whether under the gay ‘brand’ or not, is pure trash. They don’t call it the boob tube for nothing.

    I’ll admit I watch some of the Housewives BS for the crappy entertainment, if you want to to call it that. As for Andy…. The hate rage that flows through my veins for this
    vile little twat makes me violent. Cross eyed ankle biter.

    I love the theme song to this show. I sing it all night long after I watch this. I love Andy Cohen too. He’s so funny.

    @Davebert: LOL. “Cross-eyed ankle-biter.” That says it. WHO could watch such mind-numbing junk?

    I don’t care if it is on five nights a week, I just want to see less Teresa Giudice.

    Kudos to Andy Cohen. He drinks Maker’s Mark while he interviews…sigh what a man.

    “Cross eyed ankle biter” Geesh I’d hate to hear what you’d call me with MY disability.
